A hair relaxer is a technique that uses a cream that when applied to the hair, straightens it. Thus, it gives away to your curly or wavy hair and gives your hair a straight look. Hair care for relaxed hair becomes even more important as it tends to make the hair very dry because it loses on the moisture and therefore, it is essential that you condition it well so that it stays healthy.Homemade hair conditioners is the best option that one can opt for because it helps to prevent hair exposure to excessive chemicals that can damage the hair even more giving it a very dull and lifeless appearance.
- You can make a homemade conditioner for relaxed hair by taking a small jar of real mayonnaise and half an avocado wherein you mix them together in a bowl with your hands or a hand mixer and apply the same to your hair once it is dried with a towel. Wear a shower cap and let it stay on for around 20 minutes and then rinse. For a deep conditioning effect, you can wrap a hot towel around the shower cap and make sure that the mayonnaise that you use is real mayonnaise and not the salad dressing.
- Another conditioner can be made with 1 avocado and a can of coconut milk in which case you mash the avocado and keep adding coconut milk to it until it is consistent enough and then apply this to your hair, leave it on for 20 minutes and then shampoo.
- Another homemade conditioner can be prepared by taking a teaspoon of baby oil, 1 egg yolk, and a cup of water. Keep beating the egg yolk until it turns frothy, add the baby oil to it and beat it again after which you add water to it. Apply this mixture to hair and scalp, massage well and then rinse it off. Safflower oil can also be used as a leave in conditioner.
- Instead of opting for readymade hair relaxers, you can use natural ones like olive oil as it loosens the curls and makes the hair less curly. Similarly, you can also use milk where you apply it on the hair for sometime and then wash it off.
